The Dovecot at Montofoli Wine Estate is a unique, stone-built villa. On the ruins of an ancient Roman bath, a dovecot was built in the early 19th century; later a bakery and auxiliary buildings were added. Today the villa represents a landmark of the estates’ heritage.
The Dovecot is a magnificent villa representative of the elegance of another era. The entrance hall leads to the master bedroom and to a typical Cycladic staircase which leads up to the impressive second bedroom/loft. The residence has a functional kitchen, 2 bathrooms, an ample living room and a spacious veranda. The house can accommodate up to 4 people in comfort plus one or two guests on the sofa-bed in the living room.
A large hall introduces you to the residence; there is a master bedroom on the entrance level with plenty of natural light and frame-like view from the patio doors. The Cycladic staircase leads you up to the impressive second bedroom/loft. This room was the actual ‘dovecot’, where doves used to be bred, back in the 1900s. This is a unique feature scarcely found elsewhere in accommodation settings. The house has a fully equipped kitchen overlooking the terrace and 2 spacious bathrooms. The ample living room overlooks the front veranda. Inside the house you will notice the wooden-beam ceilings, which support large slabs of Karystian stones. The house floor is clad with the famous white Penteli marble, as are the kitchen-counters and the two spacious bathrooms. The Dovecot provides a sense of grandeur and the villa is carefully decorated with rare pieces of antique and modern art. The romantic villa is overflowing with history and tradition that enchants its guests. It’s a unique place for memorable moments with family and loved ones.
